I haven’t sewn anything other than a quilt for Allie in years. Years. But then I saw this pattern. It’s beautiful. And I decided it would be a perfect Christmas dress for my youngest girls, and my granddaughter. I ordered it, I bought muslin, I traced the patterns I’d need. And then I got so busy I didn’t have time to work on it. Until I realized that Christmas was coming pretty quickly, and if I wanted these dresses done, I’d better get busy. So I thought I’d blog about it. And my oldest son even made the very cool photo you see above. Love that boy!
I started working on the dresses on Tuesday, December 7. I wrote a blog post about what I did. And then blogger deleted it. I’m not going to try to rewrite the post, but just know that on Tuesday I worked on Maddie’s muslin. It’s a little snug over her head and will need some adjustments, but I don’t think it will be too bad.
